Karen Dean was a loving and kind neighbor! She was always so nice to us as kids, and checked on my parents in their older age as well. A person rarely saw Karen with out a smile, and she was always ready to share a hug. She was part of what made growing up in Galesburg nice. We will miss you Karen! Karen Townsend

Karen was a nice friend. Just wish we had gotten together more, but also kept in touch by phone. She always seemed glad to see me and we would talk like friends. Your mom was special!
